    And it didn't take 3 plus hours. Nice.

    Coco has been lights out since that meltdown before the AS break.
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Yep. It would not surprise me to see Coco back. Renteria back. Hernandez back. Well, probably not all three. But two out of three would be no surprise.

    Yes -- on one hand I can see Coco being back but let's not hope it is more than a year contract -- which I seriously doubt will be enough for him ---

    Hernandez would by a surprise to me since Devin is being annointed --- ER --- I say keep Janish for his glove as a sub

    I could see Hernandez accepting arbitration. Then what? Would the team sign him and then turn around and trade him? And if they didn't feel like they could get fair value this season, what makes them think they could get fair value when he is a year older and more expensive? He had a pretty good year in 2010 and played for 3 Million according to Cot's. He then turned around and signed with the Reds again to play in 2011 for 3 Million. His agent, I would imagine, asked around and didn't see much better out there. He has averaged only about 90 games a season for the past three years. Does anyone think he can go out there at age 36 and give a team much more than that? I think he would be foolish to turn down an offer of arbitration.

    Which is why I think the Reds will not offer arbitration and why they were fools to not trade him.

    If they aren't planning on offering arbitration then it is mind-numbing why they held on to him. Of course, all it takes is one club to like him enough. I guess we will see.
